At the 21st annual Worksite Health Awards 78 local businesses were honored. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island and the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce presented these awards to celebrate the businesses’ efforts which have benefitted thousands of Rhode Island employees. Winners were selected based on the extent and impact of their health related programs.

Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, commented: “"When the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce partnered with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island to sponsor these awards more than 20 years ago, we knew there was a need to address the issue of wellness in the workplace." Laurie continued to add "Since then, the evidence has continued to support the need for these programs with proven benefits like reduced absenteeism, higher productivity, and improved employee health and morale. We are delighted to recognize this year's winning employers-and their employees-who are addressing these health issues head on."
